5 reasons why AJ Styles turned heel on WWE RAW
- Why did AJ Styles turn heel after two years? We reveal why!
#4 RAW needs a top heel
Remember in 2016 after the brand split when the top 3 superstars on SmackDown Live were Dean Ambrose, AJ Styles and John Cena? WWE pushed AJ Styles to the top instantly to establish him as the brand's top heel and to their credit - it worked really well and he had great chemistry with both Ambrose and Cena.
On Monday Night RAW, despite the brand split being dead, there's a clear absence of a top heel. Sure, Brock Lesnar would normally fill that role, but he's hardly ever there to make a big splash anyway.
Since AJ Styles has a few more years left in the tank, it's going to be interesting to see him in the role of RAW's top heel. For all we know, the United States Championship may simply be a stepping stone for him. Don't be surprised to see him challenge for the Universal title again later this year.Published 02 Jul 2019, 09:03 IST
